Mike Coffman: Pelosi’s pro-amnesty Republican

This week Rep. Mike Coffman of Colorado was one of only 20 Republicans to join Nancy Pelosi and 181 other House Democrats in supporting the amnesty amendment to the National Defense Authorization Act (NDAA). Luckily, they failed. The amnesty amendment removed from the NDAA – over Coffman’s objections – would have recommended the secretary of defense invite the young beneficiaries of Obama’s DACA “deferred action” amnesty be invited to join the US Army as a way to expedite their path to citizenship. Thus, we would compromise even further the standards for military enlistment that have already been eroded by the Obama administration.

During his trial, Hasan said he was motivated by al Qaeda, the Taliban, and other groups considered by the United States to be supporters of terrorism. After avoiding the situation for years, the Obama administration eventually made the determination that this incident was nothing more than a disgruntled employee involved in a case of workplace violence. Now, under the 2015 National Defense Authorization Act, the Secretary of Defense has the latitude to determine if an incident such as this was motivated by a terrorist organization, and the Department of Defense can decide who receives military decorations. Today, lawyers for the military and civilian personnel who were killed or wounded at Fort Hood used this new latitude given the Secretary to file a petition with the Pentagon asking that the incident be declared an act of terrorism. Attorney Neal Sher told Reuters that the designation could make military personnel in […]
